MEMBER NOTICE - COVID-19 UPDATES - YMCA NOW OPEN

We are looking forward to welcoming back you back home to your YMCA! We have missed you so much! During our closure we have worked hard to be sure your Y is ready for you to return. Many of our locations are now open!


If your membership was on hold or if you elected to donate half of your membership dues as a tax deductible donation during closure, your regular membership dues will resume with your June draft. If your local Y remains closed and you previously requested a hold, you will remain on hold at this time unless you request otherwise.

All group activities such as youth sports, swim lessons, youth programs, and senior programs will remain suspended during the first phase of reopening. However, we look forward to offering your favorite programs soon. Register today for Summer Adventure, fall before- and after-school childcare, fall sports, swim lessons with confidence that any delays or cancellations will be fully credited. When we open programs again we will follow all guidelines outlined by officials to ensure healthy and clean environment, as well as maintain recommended social distancing.

EMERGENCY CHILDCARE FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS

The YMCA of Greater Louisville, in cooperation with officials in Kentucky and Indiana, is offering full-day, weekday childcare to our area’s state-approved essential workers. Eligible employees can register for their preferred location online or by calling 502.587.9622.

State-approved essential workers eligible for emergency childcare vary by state. Employment verification is required. See more information and register for our emergency childcare offerings for essential workers.


HEALTHY LIVING - FREE VIRTUAL RESOURCES FOR YOU

The Y will continue to offer a full array of virtual opportunities to keep our community healthy in spirit, mind and body. We encourage you to check in to the Y virtually to access our collection of free virtual resources, including fitness classes, mindfulness and meditation resources, family activities, and more, to stay active and connected to the Y virtually during these difficult times.


SUMMER ADVENTURE UPDATE

Summer Adventure will begin in Kentucky on June 15. Spaces may be limited. A few programs have been cancelled/consolidated and families affected have been notified. Due to differing state guidelines, full-day summer programs at Clark County will begin on May 18 and Floyd County on May 26. Review our policies to keep your children and our staff healthy this summer.

We are working diligently to ensure a fun, safe, and healthy summer for children and staff at the Y. If you have already registered for camp, we kindly ask you to let us know if you still plan to attend for all the weeks for which you are currently registered, or if your summer plans have changed to help us be sure we plan appropriately.

If for any reason you are unable to attend a week for which you are registered, simply notify us one week before the start of that session to receive a full refund of all payments made or stop the upcoming draft payment. In order to plan appropriately for staff, supplies and capacities, it is critical we can accurately anticipate enrollment and attendance. If you do not contact us in advance, we will be unable to provide a credit/refund for any fees paid for that week.


YMCA CAMP PIOMINGO - SUMMER 2020 CANCELLED

After reviewing the ACA and CDC guidelines, we recognize that the quality camp programming and experience that we have been known for at YMCA Camp Piomingo would not be possible. Our inability to provide the high quality camping experience our campers, families and staff are accustomed to have lead us to the heartbreaking decision to suspending all 2020 summer programs. See more information.


YOUTH SPORTS UPDATE - ENROLLMENT OPEN FOR FALL SOCCER, SPRING AND SUMMER SPORTS CANCELLED

At this time, youth sports remain suspended. Spring and summer sports have been cancelled and credits will be applied to the accounts of those registered. Enrollment is now open for Fall Soccer, which is scheduled to begin in September. If circumstances require us to cancel upcoming sports seasons, you will receive a credit. Check out our youth sports programs!


SWIMMING/SWIM LESSONS - ENROLLMENT OPEN, CURRENT SESSIONS DELAYED

At this time, swim lessons remain suspended through the end of June. Enrollment remains open for future sessions. If circumstances require us to delay or cancel additional sessions, you will receive a credit. Learn more about swim lessons!


SCHOOL-AGE CHILD CARE - CURRENTLY SUSPENDED, REGISTRATION FOR FALL 2020 IS OPEN

At this time, our School-Age Child Care program remains suspended for spring 2020.

Enrollment is now open for the 2020-2021 school year. Register early to secure your spot, knowing that any delays or cancellations will be fully credited. Sign up for Fall School-Age Child Care!



CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTERS - CURRENTLY CLOSED

At this time, our Child Development Centers at our Chestnut Street, Northeast, and Southwest Family YMCAs remain closed. You will not be charged tuition during this closure, and your spot in our center will be secure.


COMMUNITY INTEGRATED HEALTH PROGRAMS - CURRENTLY SUSPENDED

Community Integrated Health Programs including LiveStrong at the YMCA, YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program, Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring, and Actively Changing Together have been suspended until our membership branches and partner facilities are able to reopen.


YMCA SAFE PLACE SERVICES - CONTINUES TO RECEIVE REFERRALS

YMCA Safe Place Services continues to receive referrals to both Shelter House and the Youth Development Drop-In Center. Additionally, teleconferencing opportunities are now assisting us in providing meaningful case management and support to the youth and families currently enrolled in the Y-NOW Mentoring Program. YMCA Safe Place Services will take additional steps to maintain a health and safe environment as they continue to provide these services.
